Released in January 1997.

Developed by MediaWorks for Kaneko. MediaWorks was acquired by Kadokawa Shoten, in 2008, and was merged with ASCII. So, their name began 'ASCII MediaWorks'. They now have the direction of video games magazines and publishing imprints like: 'Dengeki Bunko', 'Nintendo Dreams', 'Dengeki Playstation', 'Dengeki G's Magazine'.

The title of this game translates from Japanese as 'Monkey Crab Hamster Elephant - Block Breaking Competition' ('Block Kuzushi'/'Block Breaking' is the Japanese name for 'Breakout'.)

This game is known in Asia as "VS Block Breaker".
